The village of Lamlash depicted in this edition shows the ever changing landscape that frames this picturesque seaside village. Rolling hills in the distance and big skies are set back against the everyday life of fishing boats and lobster pots scattered near the harbour. The view looks toward the south west of the island in the direction of Sliddery ‘as the crow flies’, or in this case eagles which can be spotted riding the winds in the hills high above.
Behind the walled garden of the Glen Isle Hotel sits Hamilton Terrace, built in 1895 (named after the 10th Duke of Hamilton). The Hotel originally built in the late 1700s and was the home of Mr and Mrs Sillars until Mr Sillars’ death in 1858. At this point Mrs Sillars turned the building into a boarding house named Sillars’ Temperance Hotel. It remained the same after Mrs Sillars’ death in 1901, until 1909, being run by her daughter. During the wars this building was used as navy billeting for commandos and after the Second World War in 1948 it was sold and the name was changed to the Glenisle Hotel as we know it today.
The Glen Isle Hotel on the Isle of Arran is exhibiting this edition and others in the Arran series and are available to buy ‘off the wall’ .
This signed print is one of a limited edition. It’s recorded on Hahnemühle stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper. The editions depicted on Iconic Reserve are not representative of scale and solely for the purpose of suggestive display.
